Big Data in Medicine - Tools, Transformation and Translation 2017 meeting was coordinated by Cambridge Infectious Diseases and Big Data on 4 July at Homerton College, Cambridge. Posted: 9 July 2017

In 2017, the  conference attracted over 200 together researchers in life science and medicine with mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, engineers, and others providing a showcase for cutting edge research and an opportunity for networking across the Cambridge community and beyond.

This year, the Big Data in Medicine Conference focused on: tools and technologies to capture, manage, and process medical, medically-related and health-related Big Data; methods for transforming these data into useable and useful units of information; and the processes for translating Big Data science into useable deliverables to change healthcare. Themes included:

  • Tools and technologies for Big Data in Medicine – advances in statistics, mathematics, computer science, IT platforms and interdisciplinary data science, which are creating new opportunities to manage and interpret large, complex and varied sources of health data.
  • Applications and opportunities for using big data in transforming medical sciencethrough cross-cutting and interdisciplinary work including image analysis, drug discovery, multi-omics and advanced epidemiology
  • Exploring how advances in medical data science are being translated into routine clinical care, providing decision support and opening opportunities for personalised and precision medicine
